If you are the parent or carer of a child who is currently attending, we hope you find what you need to know. In any event, please feel free to email or call us if you need to know more. We welcome your enquiries.
At St Edmund’s Catholic Pre-school and Sunshine Club, we want to help your child to reach their full potential and are excited to contribute to the most important stage of their learning journey. Through our approach to the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS), we will help your child to develop the essential Characteristics of Effective Learning, which will give them the skills they need to be successful, lifelong learners. We work collaboratively with colleagues in school to help your child make a smooth transition to the next stage in their learning and become successful members of the school community...

We're back in pre-school after a lovely summer at home, playing with our friends and family. Today we're exploring the small world 'zoo'. This helps us to develop language skills and express our imagination. https://t.co/e5InLqxQva
Look at our stories about 'The Very Hungry Caterpillar'. We like to write picture stories to read to each other at circle time. https://t.co/jZF4XnNrZG
What a busy time we've been having in Pre-school. Our caterpillars have hatched and the children released them to 'collect nectar from the flowers' (MC). We also went to the theatre to see The Very Hungry Caterpillar - what fun! https://t.co/IjjeUQinXb
The wonderful adventure wonderland. What fun! https://t.co/cJ4GTxXHTH
From frogs to dinosaurs...what a busy week. The children love the swamp theme and enjoy the smell of the herbs in the swamp. https://t.co/paEgUu34uv
We've been playing in our tuff spot with Chia seeds and thinking about the frog pond in the school vegetable garden. We love the way the slimy chia seeds feel like frog spawn. https://t.co/ULZ13tHtSX
We love learning about life cycles and growing. We're busy watching worms and caterpillars at the moment. Our beans are growing in the garden and we're looking at the frogs in the school garden. Such a lot of growing going on in pre-school this term. https://t.co/VEt7bwPZm3
More Happy Little Walkers! We love walking to school - it helps us to get strong muscles and keep active. Join us by walking, scooting or cycling to pre-school tomorrow. https://t.co/DIxkjFP95G
It's walk to school week this week. We're having great fun, joining in with the Little Feet campaign, encouraging our little ones to walk, scoot or cycle to school - no buggies for us this week! Get your sticker tomorrow for walking to school! https://t.co/hvMf37galA
It's world book week....what a busy week we've got planned: we've made gingerbread men and gingerbread houses with boxes this week so far and it's only Tuesday. More to follow!! https://t.co/0F3u9Urtn9
Another busy day as we head on fast towards half-term break. It was beautiful in the Meadow Classroom today, and everyone enjoyed making necklaces at Forest School. Using the palm drill with Peter was great fun! https://t.co/o4qLwYOJMO
We like to learn new skills. We can make our own snack and wash up the dishes when we've finished. We use real cups and real plates and are very grown up! https://t.co/zWVjVRN71e
Forest School today. It might be cold and wet, but we still love being outside, climbing trees and developing our muscles as we learn to take risks and manage our safety with the help of our teachers. https://t.co/LRXfcYKAa7
We've been having a busy old time here in pre-school. Thinking about the artist Kandinsky, and making wonderful circle pictures with buttons in Explorers Corner. https://t.co/x1dfxDlGDR
Thank you for making after school club a fun place to be with different activities and food. Ollie loves the movies and the tent.
Thank you for everything you have done for Jessica this year. She has loved coming to the preschool and looks forward to coming every week. Thanks again for all the care, attention and support.
Thank you so much for all of the help, care and support for Penelope over the past year. She can’t wait to go to ‘big school’ and you have done an excellent job in preparing her for the next step in her learning.
Thank you for your hard work and dedication. Billy has had the most amazing year at pre-school and because of your positivity and care, he is ready for school. He loves you all so much. Thank you!
We just wanted to show our support and Thank You for all your hard work in the forest schools sessions. [My daughter] and I appreciate the wonderful experiences she is provided with in these sessions and fully embrace this opportunity, as we know that not all children are lucky enough to have this. What a great addition to your already enriching delivery of early learning. We think it's well worth the investment in 'outdoor play gear' and working out our routine to maintain it!! Thanks again for your efforts.
